Those of us who are used to slipping out of our clothes and into pajamas before bed should start taking cues from those who lose all clothes and modesty and sleep naked.
No, really! I’m not saying that to be a weirdo!
Because Meryl and everyone else it turns out there are scientific benefits to stripping on downbefore dozing off.
You can’t argue with science.
First of all, it’s easier.
Think about it…you don’t have to buy pajamas, which can save you money.
You have less clothes to wash and less clothes to put away, so you save time and the environment.
Yes, you might have to wash your sheets more often, but you should probably be doing that anyway. It just easier to not put the pj’s on in the first place.
It forces you to go out more.
No, not naked unless that’s what you’re into, in which case, you do you. No judgement.
Some people get off of work, change into their pajamas, and use this as an excuse to stay home the rest of the evening. I would be one of those people.
I work from home.
For some though, this can lead to a more sedentary lifestyle, which has been attributed to things like weight gain. When you keep your regular clothes on, you tend to go out more often and that can be a good thing.
You feel more free and happy.
When things aren’t all covered up and constricted, you’re free! That’s why babies love to run around naked or in a diaper all the time.
Women, you’re not wearing a constrictive bra and keeping your girls in boob jail. Guys, no tighty whiteys. It’s just you sandwiched between two cool sheets.
The feeling just makes you want to smile and it makes you feel more free and happy.
It can improve your relationship.
Does this even need to be said?
(Insert “boom-chick-chicka-boom” music here.)
If you’re living with your significant other, sleeping naked gives a greater chance of skin-on-skin contact, especially when it comes to cuddling.
This kind of contact can also lead to a more active sex life if you’re lucky. All of this releases copious amounts of oxytocin, which is the neurotransmitter that helps you feel those good feelings about your significant other.
Except when they clip their toenails at the table. Then all those good feelings go away.
